    I am most sadden by the passing of Donna. She was the first person who befriended me upon my arrival in Columbus. OH. Our lives took different paths, but we always found our way back to conversation and laughter. She was a beautiful young lady, inside and out. I loved to hear her sing and often teased her about her not wanting to sing! She listened and gave advice in love and wanting everyone to be better! She was a great friend to many!

    My prayers will be with the family as they go through these next days and even afterwards. I pray that God will wrap His loving arms around the family and hold them close to His heart in great peace and comfort!

    What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch.We may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say goodbye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget. My deepest sympathy to the family.
